A so? ZN WEEELINO, West Virginia,
was killed one day last week by the
explosion of a barrel of whiskey.
This is a needless waste of good
material. A pound or two of gun.
powder would have accomplished
the same result, and the whiskey
might have beeu reserved for larger
The Lively Radical Corpse.
The exhibition that Smalls is
making of himself in Beaufort is
unseemly alike to himself
and the authorities of the State.
Smalls is a convicted thief, and is
only out of the penitentiary by
virtue of an appeal to the Supreme
Court of the State. The evidence
of his guilt was overwhelming, yet,
after the trial, he was continuously
in a seat in Congress that already
belonged to Mr. Tilnan. and not.
withstanding that he was in a seat
to which he had not been legally
elected, and was moreover under a
sentence he would kick
him out even if he had been
rightfully in, he votel on all impor
tant questions, and was able, owing
to the small Democratic majorities
in Congress, to give efficient ai.l in
defeating several measures of in -
portance to the country. He is a
,11 monument of the forbearance of
Congress and of South Carolina.
Why are the courts asleep ? Why
is this convicted felon suffered to
appear at large in Beaufort to or
ganize the hosts of Radicalism
against the interests of the State ?
He has even the audacity to laud
Governor Hampton. Heaven save
Hampton from such laudation I The
buttermilk policy shown towards
the Radicals, and the exceedingly
nild speeches made, are revivifying
Radicalism in a most gratifying
manner. No one can pretend that
that the acquiescence by Republi
cans in the State ticket means any
thing so long as the least contest
over the Legislature is contemplat
ed. Why is not a Democratic Leg
islature as good as a Democratic
governor and cabinet ? The secret
is that the governor and his cabinet
cannot be defeated. Hence the ac -
quiescence. Were there the shadow
of a doubt, a Radical State ticket
would be put up in less than a fort
night. Indeed, everything is be
coming so lovely all along the line
that even our~ State ticket may not
be entirely out of the woods. Who
IL knows ?
The Conflict of yurisdiction.
In the case of the reverne
officials charged wvith the murder of
Amos Ladd, Judge' Kershaw has
filed a lengthy and conclusive
opinion refusing to grant the
petition to move the case to the
Federal courts. Hie plainly shows
that this is not one of the cases
provided for in the acts of Con
gress providing for a transfer.
The murder of Ladd was not done
in the discharge of duty. The
revenue officials surrounded a
house, and when Ladd ran out he
he fired before be fell. But this
hsnothing to do with the case, as
heofficers were looking for
woLadd was. Judge Kershaw
says the law inust take its regular
eourse. An appeal may ho had to
the Stat. Supreme Court, and
thence to the Supreme Court of the
United States, and the decision of
the Court of final resort will be
adopted. But Judge Kershaw
gives warning that any attempt by
the Federal Court to get posse.
usin of the defendants before the
final decision will be resisted, and
~nay be attende$ with unpleasant
consequences. The Circuit Court
*111 not be 'peitmitted to interfere
und to overtide the Stat. Courts as
ItAhe 'done onjr g,bus occasions,
Atelegaphie. disp4tli atjng,g
tbh*AtIorney..General Devens, has
jireotEi Mr. W. . Eae, the
attorney of the defendants, to:
appeal. The case is now in good
shape, and will be cai ried to a
fimal -decision, which will to of
great importance in defining the
line of demarcation between Federal
and State jurisdiction. Heretofore
the United States has had its own
way in the courts as in everything
else. Somew time ago Jud.ge
Schenck, of North Carolina, decided:
a similar case as Judge Kershaw
has decided this, but the Supreme
Court of North Carolina, h:ving
a majority of Republicans, reversed
his decision and cringed before
the powers at Washington. We
trust that the result will be other
wise in this State.
Their prctext of acting in the
line of cficial dufy, has been a
perfect bonanza to the average
revenue oficial. When on a raiu,
every watch taken, every chicken
stolen, every gallon of whiskey
confiscated to the privato uso of
the revenue men, was said to he in
the discharge of official anties, and
justice was in every case defraude 1.
Now, however, that Springs i in
the penitentiary for steal;ng a
watch, and other oflicials aare in
danger of stretching liell) for the
murder of Ladd, a comume:I:1ahe
prudence has scizel the balance of
the force. Even if the United
States Supreme Court leverses the
decision rendered below. ,evcral
years will clapse before the matter
will be settled, and the doubt ex
isting in the mouentine will nmake
Federal oflicials attend strictly to
business, instead of wasting their
energies in chicken raids and the
pleasant pastime of murdering in
nocent men. A long step has been

there are a nmber of Carolini mns

quired. It was only nattural tha:t
those mo it con wious 0 their innir

was between flight and the Albany
Penitentiary. T1hese roefugees h tve
waited with sickening hoerts for any
change in the position of fflairs
that would enable them to go back to
their abandoned homesteLC.ids. The,
time has come. Through Ga,vernor
Hampton, once again, despair wvilt
.be ehaungecd into hope and sorrowv
will hecome joy. Amnnesty for the.
Ku-Klux offenders is not, howeover,
the only good wvork in which Wd
"Hampton is engaged.
An earnest offort is making by
Governor Hampton to seenre a
general amnnesty*for thec illicit dis
till. rs in Soutnt Carolina. WVord
has been sent by him to York coiun,
ty that, if the distillers there will
come in and bind thems8elves to
stop their unlawful work, aind if
the citizens generally will en gage
to discountenance the illicit manu
faicture and sale of wvhiskey, lie will
exert his personal influence, to the
utmost, to have the proseculiotns
against such offenders stayed or
dismissed. About twenty-five.
illicit distillers base already availed
themselves of the Governor's offer,?
and, if it be found that it works
well, the plan pursuecd in York will
be extended to other coun ties.
The statements herein made,
concerning the Ku-Klux offenders,
now in Texas and elsewhiere, and
concerning the illicit distillers, are
made by us by authority, and can
be relied on implicitly.
